of losing it for a while but the community came together and it's not about me or karen or the people being honored and it takes a community and that phrase "it takes a village to raise a child". it truly does and takes everyone of us and people in the community, our education community, our native american health center community, our crc community because once they leave us then somebody else has to pick up where we left off and carry that ball to educate the students and i see the students and it's good to see you guys and i thank you for being here and honor all of us, and keep your prayers open for hinttelethat it will always be there. if i can hang in for a couple more years i hope to retire. knock on wood. thanks for being here and each of you drive safely and thank you for your prayers and blessings and those that come before us and those coming into the world. hi pop.

." karen finney and michelle cottle. karen, if i might begin to you, let's start with the breaking news. i want to start with your reaction to news this hour the supreme court will rule on california's gay marriage ban and the defense of marriage act. should same-sex marriage advocates, karen, be nervous or pleased about this? >> i hope that history will show they should be pleased and that this will be the day that, you know, this process where in the same way that loving v. virginia opened up rights for people like my parents to get married, this will be the beginning of the decision where we recognize that same-sex couples should enjoy the same rights and benefits of marriage. i hope it is the start of what is the american journey for expanding rights of every american. >> given the current composition of the court, i am nervous. i do not yet share karen's optimism. i'm concerned the court will move to take away the rights of gay people to get married and let states block it where they want to. i think we would need to focus on two people. where does justice kennedy go? and he's being i
. kristin, welcome. >> reporter: thanks, karen. good afternoon. >> so what are we hearing about this meeting? i know it's still going on. any news? >> reporter: well, we do know this, a source familiar with these talks says that president obama is not going to be offering anything new during this afternoon's meeting. he's essentially going to be saying what he said at the white house last friday when he called on congress to put forth a package that would extend bush era tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less, extend unemployment insurance benefits, as well as stave off some of those deep spending cuts that are set to go into effect. the president is going to make the argument that he believes this can pass through both houses, but, of course, there is a big question mark over that. i have been speaking with republican aides on the hill who say house republicans are really waiting to see what the senate does at this juncture before they weigh in on anything that the president might say during today's meeting. but, of course, we will have to wait and see what actually happens. we're hopin

. it is clearly happening out there. and karen the drudge report going crazy. jared loughner used handgun and you couldn't write legislation that did not try to take that gun out of jared loughner's hand. we had a weapon that was used. i think he modified his ar 15 to be able to shoot more people faster but yeah, i think part of what is happening. we talked about this last night. people don't realize how broken our system really is. these guns are available when people should not have them. what that means, that is about mass killing. that is not about being a sportsman. that is part of what is being driven home right now. when the nra is throwing around all sorts of fake notions that are in the fake dialogue. no one is saying that you can stop everyone of these things. how hard do you you want to make it? the risk of the gun in the home is greater than the benefit. as the owner of the gun in connecticut found out when his son got his hands on it. and the accidents happen in homes with guns. how hard is that to find out. >> go figure. the other issue today is that looking around the web, it is ac

options, stay the course or throw the bum out. so what 2012, karen in the end, was it a referendum or a choice? that's the question that we kept having. >> it was the exact question we kept asking a year ago. given the state of the economy, given how most people felt whether the country was on the right track, it should have been a referendum on barack obama's performance. but his campaign was determined to make it a choice between him and mitt romney. and what was really remarkable is by time election day rolled around, the election had almost become a referendum on mitt romney. gwen: yeah, funny how they turned that around. after it was all over, a lot of the things we didn't believe during the campaign, the obama people said oh, we figured this out. we know who our voters are. we know where to spend the money. we thought they were boasting. and it turns out they were right. >> the one thing, really, i think defied everybody's expectations is what the obama campaign said they were going to do, was that they were going to turn out an electorate in 2012 that looked very much like t

that threshold is. >> karen finney, i want to ask you about the same question, this ten days business. but i also want to amendment that question or expand it. how much damage did the republicans do last night by blowing up plan "b"? in other words, does that take them out of the power position in the negotiations? >> absolutely. because i think at this point, it's pretty clear that any kind of -- boehner could not get, what? 117 votes. so it's clear whatever happens next, he's not going to be able to rely on his own caucus to make that happen. that means, who do you need? nancy pelosi and you're going to have to get democrats to get something through the house. and so, i certainly think republicans hurt themselves in their leverage and look at the polling, 51% of americans have a favorable view of democrats, 31% of americans have a favorable view of republicans, and i can't imagine after watching what happened last night that those numbers for republicans have gotten better. i imagine they've gotten worse. i think the last thing i'll say here is for speaker boehner, he is in a very weakened posi

[ speaking foreign language ] >> john boehner seems to care more about keeping his speakership than about keeping the nation on firm financial footing. >> let's take the american people out of the line of fire in terms of taxes. >> it's being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker. >> i have never known john boehner not to have a plan. >> it seems pretty dark right now. >> it looks like there's no way there's going to be any deal done. >> so i say to the speaker, take the escape hatch we've left you. >> we're not going to get anything done that
karen gray houston has more on this story from southeast. >> reporter: this southeast community is shaken after a man shot a woman to death on a metrobus and left a small child injured and hospitalized. police are desperately seeking the public's help to find the killer. the b2 bus had stopped at 18th and minnesota to pick up passengers. police say the unidentified woman had just taken the child out of a stroller. a young woman who was on the bus at the time but did not want to speak on camera tells me just as the two got on board the man she thought was a boyfriend stepped into the well of the bus, pulled a gun out of his pocket and started firing. that woman tells me bullets killed one person, struck the child and may have hit another person. she says passengers were screaming duck down, duck and telling the bus driver go, go, go! the suspect fled and the driver drove the bus another block before pulling over. >> once they got on the bus a male subject followed close behind her and opened fire into the bus. the young woman who is an adult -- we don't have an exact age on her r
washington was inching towards a deal. but today, plan b could be signaling differences. we have karen b and sara fagan herself a former political director. i know what it means. no tax rates above $1 million. no tax hikes but why did bay nor decide to do that. what signal is he sending? >> i think what he is telling the president is look, i appreciate you coming around on this, i appreciate you giving, it is not enough. and i'm going to go to the floor and show you, that $400,000 is not a deal republicans are going to accept. the other thing that occurs that, is it is important for him that he gets a free pass to do his vote check. can he get the votes on thursday and if republican ares vote for a millionaire's tax increase, they will vote for people making $500,000. >> harry reid dampened the market towards the end of the day. but do you buy what sara said? >> i do. we have to read what is going on. sending signals internally. the other piece of this is this vote gives people cover in terms of protecting millionaires from a restohetorical position. we can't get your $250,000. maybe the
." tavis: there's only one person on this whole set that does that. that's karen. karen's the only one. >> karen? yeah, i just spoke to you. tavis: i get called many other things around here, but only karen calls me mr. smiley. >> you know, i don't know. i want to be with my people. that's what i want to be with. i mean, obviously, i've done a lot of things. i never thought i'd do them. i barely got out of high school and i look back at my life often and go, "wow, this was awesome!" but i don't know. you have to carry it forward, so i don't know what i'm gonna do with that. tavis: how often do you get a chance to interact with the kids who actually read your books? >> you know, that's the reason... tavis: you got a nice app, by the way, too. >> they did an amazing app of one of my books, my balloon book which is called "where do balloons go? an uplifting mystery" about loss and letting go and creativity. a company came to me and said, "we'd like to make an app of your book" and it's [bleep] fantastic, like crazy great. tavis: i saw it. >> it's so much fun. you make balloon animals and
. the only problem is, a.c.o.r.n. closed the doors in 2010. karen finney on the informed electorate in the republican party. >>> let us vote! let us vote! >> and we are back. republicans in several states are promising election reforms right away. they promise to prevent these incredibly long lines in the future. here's the problem. those same republicans created those long lines in the first place. now, we've shown you how people waited for hours to cast ballots in virginia and ohio. the long lines were even longer in florida, where some voters waited up to seven hours. the problem grabbed the president's attention on election night. >> whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time -- by the way, we have to fix that. >> yes, we do. so today, united states senator barbara boxer from california introduced the l.i.n.e. act. it would require an election commission to set new national standards by january 1st, 2014. the commission would decide the minimum number of voting machines, workers, and other resources needed for an election. it would keep vote
. our new category is the biggest surprise of 2012. karen finney, what was the biggest surprise of 2012. >> that we were able to call the election around 11:00. >> i actually thought it would happen, by the time we got to california, closing time we would know. >> i really thought it would be a much bigger mess, and i didn't think the president would be able to win without us having a debacle in florida, and thankfully we didn't. >> joy reed, what was the big surprise? >> the big surprise was that mitt romney chose paul ryan as his running mate. he is the right guy? but as a democrat, secretly, i was like oh please, pick paul ryan, i didn't think he would do it. >> there were so many reasons not to pick him. >> but he was like ideological, and they crystallized all the things they didn't like about mitt romney, the 47%, voucherizing medicare, all that was crystallizing in one person, he picked him for the running mate, i was surprised. >> the big surprise, something way behind scenes, the debate commission makes the rules, they are usually secret. they leaked these, you can read the rul
." let's get to our panel. karen finney is an msnbc political analyst, ana marie cox is a columnist for the guardian and steve kornacki is my colleague. steve, we checked the website of one online gun supplier for the sort of rifle that was used by the individual on friday. i think we have video of it, and they're almost completely sold out. now, a new abc/"washington post" polls believe newtown is indicative of broader problems in american society. so do you think this time things are different? the circumstances, the context, this time for a conversation about gun control is different? >> it is. and the pressure i think is going to be more intense in the days, weeks, and probably months following this on politicians to act. it's not just because of the horrific details of this, as awful and almost unprecedented as they are, but there's also sort of a trend here that i think it's 6 of the 12 worst mass shootings in u.s. history have happened since 2007. so there's this growing awareness of, wow, this is reaching like, you know, serious proportions right now, and if you think -- >>
of journalists, anna marie cox and karen tumblty, a political reporter for the "washington post." good sunday afternoon to both of you. >> anna marie, let me start with you. for about two days after the election, everyone is holding hands, singing kumbaya. no one is singing any more. all of that optimism seems to have disappeared. we're hearing more lawmakers saying publicly, we just heard from lindsay graham yesterday. i had a congressman from vermont on the show, he said the same thing that we could very well be jumping over this cliff. posturing or reality? >> well i think it's something of a reality. but this is case where the moniker of fiscal cliff i think is going to wind up hurting republicans. because it sounds so scary. even though there is not going to be any immediate fiery death, if things don't happen. and i think the president kind of looks better going into this, i think they know that they say in game of chicken, he who cares the least wins. and i think it's the white house who kind of just is going to let the republicans play this out. however they want. and there's also a c
analyst karen finney. david, first, senator demint dumps all over boehner's job plan, now he's jumping ship altogether. how much of a loss is mr. demint, a man who once said single mothers who live with their boyfriends should not be allowed to teach in public schools? >> we at mother jones.com just put up the seven craziest things jim demint has ever said. there was a lot to choose from. don't ask me why we stopped at seven. >> do you have one better than the one i just quoted? >> that was pretty good. i think that's on the list. >> good. any others? >> people can just go there. the main thing here is that jim demint has been more an obstacle in the senate than, of course, in the house and i think his departure from there is good news i think for the one remaining moderate republican senator because he's really been quite responsible for choosing and picking and getting behind these tea party republicans like rand paul that have burrowed their way into the senate and made it much harder for anyone to come up with a reasonable deal there or any place else on capitol hill. so if he want
, your alabama hospitality is incredible. thanks, karen. love your mississippi outdoors. i vote for your florida beaches, dawn. bill, this louisiana seafood is delicious. we're having such a great year on the gulf, we've decided to put aside our rivalry. now is the perfect time to visit anyone of our states. the beaches and waters couldn't be more beautiful. take a boat ride, go fishing or just lay in the sun. we've got coastline to explore and wildlife to photograph. and there's world class dining with our world famous seafood. so for a great vacation this year, come to the gulf. its all fabulous but i give florida the edge. right after mississippi. you mean alabama. say louisiana or there's no dessert. this invitation is brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. >>> one of president obama's initial proposals to avert the fiscal cliff included $50 billion in new infrastructure spending. that as we know landed with a thud among congressional republicans but despite that reaction, it doesn't seem like the president is backing down. >> the second thing that we've got to do
? >>> and we've got karen finney and sam stein coming up talking about that. >>> and later, "time" magazine names president obama as person of the year for a second time. i'll discuss the magazine's choice with presidential historian doug brinkley. >>> and don't forget, you can listen to my radio show on sirius xm radio monday flew friday from noon to 3:00 p.m. share your thoughts with us on facebook and on twitter youing the hash tag ed show. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." everybody wants a deal. are we going to get it? folks, i tell you, today we may be farther from a deal on the fiscal cliff than ever before. and the reason i think is pretty simple. president obama has put a deal on the table. the republicans should be taking, but they refuse. today president obama expressed his outright dismay. >> the republicans in the house and i think speaker boehner were in a position to say we've gotten a fair deal. the fact that they haven't taken it yet is puzzling. >> president obama's deal would have offered republicans a change in the way social security is calcula
against guns, karen finney, and representative adam schiff. the nr a spent a week saying nothing and, boy, did they break their silence today. as someone who has been in the trenches fighting this group for many years, can you tell us are people going to be more or less scared of the nra following this so-called press conference because by all measures, it was a complete disaster. >> it was a disaster. i think those who take a lot of money from the nra are probably scratching their heads rethinking how they're -- where they could get other dollars because actually my read of that press conference was that it would further galvanize support for the kind of common sense measures that we've been talking about because he was so -- lapierre was so disconnected from reality. i worked in new york city public schools. the idea of putting armed guards in schools is not even worth treating as a serious idea. it was so sort of out of step with where i think the conversation has been, the level of respect, and the kind of conversation we've been having nationally that i would almost guarantee you tha
